So Thankful

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family!

For my layout, I have used the sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays for the November Guest Design Team Challenge. Besides the sketch, we were directed to include a list of things we are thankful for as well as at least five leaves. This is such a fantastic sketch and I got to play with my brand new papers and embellishments from We R Memory Keepers. This was such a fun layout to create!
I would also like to share my layout at:
The Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes
The Little Red Wagon - thanks

Despite the fact that it has been warm enough to wear shorts here all weekend (unseasonably warm!), yesterday, my boys decided it was high time to decorate for Halloween! This is what I worked on while they hung skeletons from the trees and picked out grave sites....

I call this my "potting cabinet" - it's where I stash my gardening gloves, small tools and pots. Would you believe I found it at the curb for FREE?!? I just love it, and it is perfect for stashing all my small garden stuff just outside our side door.
All those crazy and colourful gourds/squash were grown in my garden! The funny part is that I didn't even plant them! We think that they grew perhaps because we compost last autumn's pumpkins etc in the garden, a few seeds somehow survived.....

Best run, we are heading out to the country to spend the afternoon with another family that have adopted us. We are so lucky and so very much to be thankful for!

Enjoy your turkey day, whatever you're up to!
